Is there a God and would this God be Allah?
No one can deny that everything we see in the universe is well structured and ultimately controlled by natural laws of physics and dynamics. Every living being - human, animal or plant, has a highly sophisticated structure and a well-tuned system to function and survive. Where is all that coming from and what is the origin of our universe?
Could there be a God or a designer, with he, or she, responsible for creating the universe and everything in it? Would such designer be involved in controlling our lives and are we, in the end, going to be accountable for every action we make, or are going to make?
There are many unanswered questions that have been repeatedly raised since man came into being and now we have a wealth of knowledge, along with amazingly advanced technology, to help us get some sensible answers. Try to imagine a mobile phone being presented to a Bedouin, some 1400 years ago, and telling him; "this is your God talking to you"! He or she would not doubt you for a second. However, once he discovered how the mobile phone worked, that same Bedouin would realise how foolish he was to believe that what he had heard was God's voice!
In other words, it would be much better to admit that we do not yet know the answers to questions such as - Where did the universe come from? - And what did exist before the universe? - rather than stick it all on the back of imaginary Gods, for whom we have exhausted all our imagination to justify their existence, despite the fact that we cannot see them, we can not personally talk to them, we do not know where they come from and we cannot give them any physical form or shape - but they are Eternal, Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent! In any case, we have thousands of words to manipulate and juggle to enable us to fabricate proof of Gods' existence!
The big problem we have faced for thousands of years is that there are thousands of deities (Gods and Goddesses) people believed in since they started thinking of God, and each of those deities' believers are totally convinced that their deity is the true one and all other deities are false!
If we assume there is a creator or God, then the obvious questions should be:
Would he be a single deity or multiple deities?
Where did he come from?
Where does he reside, which part or location of the universe does he occupy?
What is his physical shape, his characteristics, how does he function and what proof can we get for his credentials?
Why does he stay in hiding and why, as we are told, he can only communicate through his angels and always secretively?
All these questions can be asked and investigated to reach a conclusion if there is a God or not,
but first let us see if any evidence of God's existence can be validated.
Here are the most common evidence presented by philosophers and religious scholars
to justify the existence of a God
The Kalam Cosmological Argument
The word "kalam" is Arabic for ‘speaking’ but more generally the word can be interpreted as ‘theological philosophy’. This is the in its general form:
Whatever begins to exist has a cause for its existence.
All matter, space and time began to exist. ...
The ontological argument is a conductive argument. It is not based on observation of the world but rather on reason alone.
There is no need for physical evidence of God’s existence; we can work out that he exists just by thinking about it. Here is his argument in its logical state:
The evidence of
Allah is no exception to the need to be examined and see what evidence have been submitted to prove his existence.
It has been claimed that Allah is the only God that has ever existed, the eternal, the omniscient, the omnipotent, the all-knowing, and the all-perfect. .....
Can any of the Quranic evidence
Let us briefly look at the evidence stated in the Quran:
1- The unity chapter
‘Say: ‘He is God the one the most unique, Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; ‘He has no offspring, nor is He born from anything. And there is none equal to Him’
This can be claimed by anyone and unless it is packed by solid proof, it can not hold true. ...
